Cesar Chavez Park has been selected for "Heart Your Park," a program introduced as part of Macy's "Secret Garden" campaign, that aims to raise awareness and dollars for local parks across the country. From March 7 to March 31, customers at Macy's in Westfield Horton Plaza in downtown San Diego can donate $1 or more at the register, with 100 percent of the donations benefiting Cesar E. Chavez Park. To further spread the love, Macy's will match the total customer donation across all stores, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000 in total.
The Port of San Diego will host two community workshops as part of its effort to gather input for its Integrated Port Master Plan Update process. The Port of San Diego, the fourth largest port in California, is in the midst of developing a 50-Year Vision Plan as part of the Port Master Plan Update to help guide land and water uses in the San Diego Bay.
The new sign will span Cesar E. Chavez Parkway between Main Street and Newton Avenue. Architect Vicki Estrada, with Estrada Land Planning, designed the sign concept, using a collaborative process initiated by the Port of San Diego. Community input was obtained during several public outreach meetings held in Barrio Logan attended by residents, property owners, business owners, and artists.
